Hi Everyone! I am so happy that Danni has invited me to share so of my furniture transformations with you. My name is Deneen and my blog is Dreamingincolor. I paint furniture but I also design, paint, craft and have recipes. I have even been telling about my recent trip to Italy too.
First let me say that I had the pleasure of meeting Danni and she is as sweet and spunky in person as she is on her blog. She has become a special friend. She even helped me out by guest posting when I was in Italy.
I never thought I would be painting furniture. I am an artist and I paint and sell canvas usually but I fell in love with furniture and transforming it into a work of art.
Painting canvas has helped me when it came to painting furniture. I applied what I knew to give it my spin on things~
I have papered the fronts of pieces.
This red hutch was a fun piece to work on. I always love the before and afters!
I like using different hardware on furniture. I find knobs I like and buy them and hope I have a piece that will fit them. I know I am crazy but I guess you can say I am a knob kinda gal!
I loved these crystal knobs!
This grey buffet was beautiful at Christmas! Funny though I decided to put this in my living room when I needed a place for my husbands huge TV to sit upon!
As an artist I get bored with doing the same things so I decided to start painting and trying different patinas. I even layered colors to get the looks I was going for and Annie Sloan featured one of them.
My French Patina painted night stands.
The key to it all is have fun! Know that there are no rules and think outside the box! I really love doing this but after you paint so much it can be tiring so I have to try and recreate the wheel to keep it interesting!!
I will leave you with what I think is my biggest transformation of all time and my favorite piece I painted...
my roll top desk without the roll! The before was horrible! Brad Paisley would have loved it for his song Camouflage! ( Sorry Danni I put a country song in there) But it was ugh ly! ....and there were lots of surprises!
The end result was soooooo much better!
My favorite painted piece is still My Audrey Hepburn Dresser!
I hope you have enjoyed the few that I shared. Please stop by my blog and look around at some more. You can search on the side bar.
Thanks again Danni! I love that our blogs have brought us together and started a friendship!
Thanks to everyone for reading!
